Tao of Contributing
"Ultimately, the discovery of a life’s work begins with the realization of what it means to be a human being — embracing what binds us all together and appreciating what makes each of us unique. As long as we deny that we are social beings and ignore the needs of the world, we miss the sense that our work is meaningful. We feel cut off, lonely, and alienated. As long as we deny our individuality and fail to develop and express our unique talents and gifts, we miss the joy of creative self-expression. We feel frustrated, repressed, and trapped. Simply put: To the extent that your work takes into account the needs of the world, it will be meaningful; to the extent that through it you express your unique talents, it will be joyful."
...which Donna took from a book by the always brilliant Laurence G. Boldt.
This has helped clarify my I Ching reading. Today is a day for me to stay home and write - and my job is to write for benefit of the community. Simple.
Back to it then!
